Zuttah, Joseph recovering from shoulder injuries



TAMPA -- Sunday's 27-6 win against Buffalo was a physical game for the Bucs, who have starting offensive linemen Jeremy Zuttah and Davin Joseph recovering from shoulder injuries suffered in the game.

"Jeremy Zuttah's got a shoulder. He'll be day-to-day," coach Greg Schiano said. "I think (receiver) Vincent (Jackson) came out of it OK. Davin had a shoulder, got bumped, came back, then sat the later part of the game."

Zuttah and Joseph collided in the second quarter after Bills safety Jairus Byrd intercepted a pass from Mike Glennon as they tried to stop him during his return. Both were back in the starting lineup on the following possession, but were out at the end of the game as the Bucs went to backups with a comfortable lead.

Rookie defensive lineman William Gholston, who had a season-best 1.5 sacks against the Bills, is going through protocol to evaluate for concussion symptoms after hitting his head during Sunday's game.
